Yeugh - and to think I would've thought this was cool once upon a time:

Well it's not expensive yet if you really like it. And I'm sure a suitable tank could be found to suit your aesthetic preferences. I still think it'd be better off in the pond, tho it's far from being the most outrageous chop we've seen on here.

this on the other hand has turned one of K's lesser bikes into something that someone might actually like :

It is, but then I think chops look best with a V-twin. Having said that, it does look tidy & doesn't have the stupid huge holes through it poorly done chops do. Besides I can't afford anymore toys currently, might think about it if/when I sell the Pan (which depends on fixing the 14) or if I get rid of the Landy as I'm not convinced by it as a toy yet.

Dunno, parallel twins and singles can cut it as chops as well. This Kwak is simple and not overdone, works quite well if you ask me. Haven't a clue what it's like to ride tho. The stock Z400 was supposed to be a bit crap.
